The faculties of Northgate High School and the Community College of Allegheny County established a partnership that aligned core academic and elective courses across the two institutions. Additionally, the School Board has revamped our District's graduation requirements to better prepare all students for success after high school. Whether a student chooses to enroll in college, enter a career, or join the military, we want to make sure that all of our students are exposed to rigorous courses that stretch them academically.
Currently, all of our high school students in grades 10, 11, and 12 are enrolled in courses for which they could earn college credit. This is very exciting for us, as many of our students will be first generation college attendees. Not only will earning college credit in high school give them the advantage of advanced standing, but it will also give them the confidence needed to succeed.
